This chapter provides a more comprehensive account of the use of internment which covers most of the repercussions associated with the measure. This will involve a reappraisal of both the long-term and short-term effects of internment, some of which have not been previously identified. This chapter explores a number of areas. How did the use of repressive measures by a liberal state impact on the targeted community? What were the major effects of internment in the wider context? How did internment change the IRA especially PIRA? What was the main long-term legacy of the use of internment for the conflict?

Keywords:   Repercussions, Reressive Measures, IRA, Long-term Legacy
